The NCCA is tasked under RA10066 or the National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009, through the appropriate cultural agencies and local government units (LGUs), to establish and maintain the Philippine Registry of Cultural Properties (PRECUP). Local Government Units are specifically mandated by the law to maintain an inventory of cultural property under its jurisdiction and to furnish the NCCA a copy of its local inventory. In order to help the LGU identify and account its cultural properties, the NCCA has established the Technical Assistance for Cultural Mapping to support them in this endeavor.

In order to increase the number of facilitators equipped to conduct cultural mapping training in different LGUs, the NCCA is calling on interested educators and/or cultural workers to attend and participate in the 2018 Cultural Mapping Facilitators Training on April 16-20, 2018 at the Silid Darangen of the NCCA Building. There are 20 slots available for application.

Cultural mapping is a multi-disciplinary field. It requires stock knowledge on many related areas of research, including social artistry, cultural and art studies, architecture and urban design, geography, sociology, cultural policy and planning, and the social sciences. Applicants must meet the following:

  • Background on cultural heritage
  • At least 5 years of experience in cultural work
  • Workshop/seminar/training facilitation skills
  • Language (written and spoken) fluency in Filipino, English and preferably regional language

Employed applicants should seek endorsement from the head of their organization allowing them to engage in cultural mapping activities undertaken by the NCCA. They also need to accomplish the application form and submit curriculum vitae.
